¿Qué aprenderé?

This course explore humanity from its earliest origins and uncover what it means to be human with our BA Archaeology and Anthropology with Professional Placement degree. This four-year, joint honours course combines archaeology’s examination of material evidence from our past and present with anthropology’s focus on human development through time. Studying these two disciplines together allows you to piece together a thorough understanding of the human condition.

This understanding will be crucial in addressing issues critical to our shared global future, including:

  • the relationship between humans and environmental change
  • inequality, migration and identity
  • population growth and development
  • human diets and health
  • politics, economics and sustainable living.

By examining human behaviour, development and societies, you will better understand the roots of these issues, and can investigate how previous cultures have tackled comparable problems – and how contemporary cultures are tackling them now.

Professional Placement

A key component of this course is a fourth year so that you can complete a placement during your third year of study. A professional placement allows you to apply – and increase – your academic knowledge while enhancing your employability.

Previous placement students have analysed samples in labs, processed human remains, worked on hominin skeletal morphology, drawn archaeological finds, conducted collections-based research, studied the ecology of the Crusades through isotope analysis and faunal remains, investigated paleoclimate records, and participated in castle excavations in Spain.

You can complete your placement with an employer in the UK or abroad, and take advantage of our connections with a range of organisations in the archaeological, heritage, planning and museum sectors.

What career can you have?

Studying a joint honours degree in archaeology and anthropology means you will develop a broad range of subject-specific and transferable skills in the humanities and the sciences, preparing you for a diverse range of career opportunities.

The archaeology, heritage, education, public and not-for-profit sectors are popular choices for graduates of the archaeology and anthropology disciplines.

Roles within marketing, advertising, PR and the media require the communication and analytical skills you will develop during your studies. A career in insurance or the law is also possible, requiring the ability to formulate and articulate arguments based on facts – an ability that will be nurtured during your time at Reading.
